Customer Question
Intermittent problem starting DTC...

Intermittent problem starting DTC p0340 and p0011 I replaced both cam and VVT solenoid still revving RPM drops but not stalling

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the check engine light on? Does the car stall at idle or when driving?

Cleared but it came back on with the DTC p0340 and p0011 changed the oil didn't make a difference.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Nissan?

2006 Nissan frontier 4.0

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Frontier yourself? What have you tried so far?

Check the electrical connection with help of a friend all good

hey there, thanks for the question.

Do you notice any noise at start up or when reving the engine?

No nose at the start up. Just revving high to low rpm constantly
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
what was the $5.00 I paid for?
Nissan Mechanic: Jake, Nissan Technician replied 4 months ago

Well based off the codes you have bank one IVT and Bank 1 cam sensor codes.

You either have the secondary bank 1 timing chain off a tooth or the bank 1 cam sensor is bad.

If you did not use an OEM sensor, I would make sure to go that route first.

Otherwise you like have an issue with the secondary chain on bank one either the tensioner has failed or the chain jumped a tooth.
